Nice easy trail from Aspen to top of gondola short and sweet maintained trail. You have to keep going to Taylor Lake trail to enjoy much more if you have time.

Great trail out past the gondola at the top of Aspen Mountain. Amazing views and wildlife. From downtown Aspen go pas the gondolas then towards the mountain on Aspen Road through a residential section. Follow the trail from there and watch out for the motor cycles and hikers.

Drove the whole loop from the backside of aspen down the front slopes. Backside was pretty rocky but front side looking down on aspen was pretty easy going. Great views.

Pretty fun trail, did it in my 4-door Wrangler and had a blast. Really beautiful, and super easy—not many rocks at all, and not too steep.

Drove my 2016 4Runner Limited up this trail and it was a blast. I would rate it as easy. The views were great and it was so fun to drive up the slope. When we got to the top of the lift area we continued onto Little Annie Rd and went all the way down to Castle Creek Rd and took that back into Aspen.

First to Review

Drove most of this trail in a Jeep Patriot. There is no way this trail is "easy", as it is very steep and dangerous. Road is fairly rocky all the way to the top. I would not go on this road alone again without a partner. You essentially scale the ski mountain all the way to the top for a spectacular view of Aspen!!! The reason I gave it a there is because it just a back and forth road up the side of the mountain.
